Year-over-year home sales for January and the relatively low inventory of homes available to purchase indicate there is no reason to wait until spring to list your home for sale, according to Chris Kelly, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies.
â€œThe latest numbers from North Texas Real Estate Information Systems offer a compelling case for sellers who would like to get a head start on their potential competition,â€ Kelly says.
A few of the highlights from the NTREIS numbers for January 2020 vs. January 2019 include:
* The average sales price for a North Texas home rose 8.9%.
* The average percent of original list price sellers received was 95.1%
* The average days on market was 61 days.
â€œThese numbers make it clear that the winter of 2020 offers a great climate in which to list a North Texas property for sale,â€ Kelly says. â€œPotential sellers should act now to get ahead of the traditional spring market.â€
